The blue hat is a favorite and often stays on his head even as he falls asleep for nap or bed time. He reminds me of Hunter S. Thompson with it on and that makes me giggle.
Lots of talking, chatting and singing happening still. Lots of color identification (favorite color possibly yellow or blue?), counting to 6 (why six, I don’t know), identifying letters (not the actual letters, just the fact that they are “abcd’s”).
Just this week climbing and scaling all sorts of things has become a total obsession. I found him on the patio table on Monday night, just hanging out sitting there. Last night as I cleaned and organized the pantry, he squeezed his way past me and started to climb the shelving unit as if it were playground equipment. The library stool that we have for washing hands in the bathroom often gets drug out for all sorts of reasons, including pulling it up to the counter as we prep food, pulling it up to the fish tank area to get a better look and lately to pull it into the pantry to get things that are “up high” an “hebby” down, especailly those little treats for Cloe-girl, oye.
Daycare (3 days a week) has been going well. Though some days its more like peeling Velcro off my leg then simply a drop and go. He has a great set of teachers and ‘friends’ at school. Most of the kids he has been with since he started and I love that. He is still spending two days a week at my mom’s (JoJo) and loves Wednesdays the most because she totally humors him by puttin him in the stroller and following the garbage trucks around the neighborhood- that JoJo, she is a keeper.
There has been some serious “Monkey-see-Monkey-do” going on these days- If Daddy is doing it, he wants in on the action- It makes us laugh and also makes us really aware of our actions and words. So far no slips other than “Crap” when I dropped an entire carton of eggs on the carpet the other day.
He is still loving to sit and read, though not as much as he was a few months ago (we could pass hours by reading books, hours). His favorite book these days is an old Golden Book that I found at a yard sale, illustrated by Richard Scary called “Cars and Trucks”. He also loves to get all the tracks to the wooden train set out and set up elaborate railways and send the trains ‘Round the corner” and ‘Thru the tunnel”.
